Henley Royal Regatta will once again take place on the River Thames from Wednesday the 3rd July to Sunday the 7th July 2013. It is a historic occasion, set in a riverside village that has barely changed in over the last two centuries. The Henley Royal Regatta is undoubtedly the best known regatta in the world and is one of the highlights of London’s busy sporting calendar and the social season. Every year the Henley Royal Regatta attracts thousands of visitors over a 5 day period with over 200 races of an international standard. Aside from rowing visitors can soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the facilities within the enclosures.
All races are held over the full Henley Course on the River Thames. The length of the Course is one mile 550 yards (2,112 metres) – upstream. Winning a race at the Henley Royal Regatta is considered one of the greatest achievements of a rower’s career.
The Stewards' Enclosure is open exclusively to Members and their Guests, while the Ragatta Enclosure is situated just downstream from the Stewards' Enclosure and is open to the general public, competitors and supporters. The Regatta Enclosure offers good viewing of the races with seating alongside the river and in an open grandstand. There is also an excellent covered restaurant, an outside dining area and a bar.
On Sunday the 7th of July, the final day of Regatta there will be a family fun day, where there will be a selection of events and activities organised to keep the whole family entertained.
The draw for all races will takes place on Saturday 29th June 2013 in Henley Town Hall.
